Please be advised that at no time is the advice or other information herein meant to take the place of proper medical evaluations and treatment in a physicians office or hospital when that may be necessary. And at no time will any definitive diagnoses be made by me online. Furthermore, my support of natural health care is not intended to imply that when medically appropriate I do not support the use of drugs when prescribed and taken properly along with natural health care. Consider for example that clearly antibiotics can and do save lives when dealing with serious infections. This is what the concept of complementary medicine refers to. However, in the area of mental health care I support a 100% purist natural approach to intervention due to the myriad of reports of catastrophic adverse reactions with all of the psychiatric drugs and other interventions of psychiatrists coupled with the lack of scientific evidence for any of the diagnoses of the psychiatrists.
Also, please be advised that unless otherwise stated the positions against psychiatry offered on this website and its links for articles I have written along with blogs and comments on social media are solely based on my opinions due to my personal and professional experiences in dealing with psychiatrists and the brutal psychiatric system. These opinions are not based on scientific studies unless otherwise stated. However, please keep in mind that the diagnoses of the psychiatrists are also not based on objective scientific methodologies, and their interventions have consistently been found to be potentially very harmful, and the psychiatrists rarely if ever admit this.
The mental health care human rights abuse commentaries, thoughts, tips, alerts and articles are in no manners meant to take the place of medical treatment if such medical treatment is necessary. However, it is my firm advice to all readers that you should consult with health care providers who are not psychiatrists if you need help with your general health or mental health. And if at anytime psychiatrists force treatment on you I encourage you try to get help from both myself and a lawyer who has an interest in helping people fight unwanted psychiatric treatment. Also, please be advised that although the antipsychiatry comments are often very critical of U.S. Department of Justice policies in dealing with mental health care I am a peace activist and I only support peaceful forms of protest about this and all other matters with the U.S. government and any other parties.
